Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE LOWCOUNTRY: FROM CHARLESTON TO SAVANNAH travels through the history, culture, and geography of the 100-mile stretch of coast between South Carolina and Georgia. With two of the country's most historically rich cities flanking this region, the history documenting this area illustrated with vibrant color photography, runs from enchanting to eccentric, and easily builds the case for a modern-day tourist destination that attracts more than 30 million visitors a year. Award-winning photographer Bob Krist and travel writer Cecily McMillan explore everything from architecture and city planning to the coastal scenery and world-renowned golf courses of the region, including the famed Parris and Hilton Head islands. LOW COUNTRY is a stunning modern-day illustrated narrative of one of the country's most historically flamboyant regions.

With Charleston and Savannah, two of the country's most historically rich cities anchoring this region, the Lowcountry runs from enchanting to eccentric.
